WELLESLEY, MAY 15, 1913. 

No. 29 


In poring over the bulletin of electives, these 
days, our attention is drawn to the new members 
of the Faculty in the various departments. Courses 
gain their fame so much from the personality of 
their organizers and leaders, that a new name below 
a familiar title on the bulletin, is apt to fill us with 
uncertainty, if not disappointment. It will be 
timely, therefore, to learn something of the new 
members of our Faculty for next year, who will fill 
the vacant places made by sabbatical years and 
greater developments. 

Perhaps the greatest change will be in the De- 
partment of Education. In the Alumnae columns 
of the News for May 8, announcement was made 
of the model kindergarten which is to be built 
on the campus in connection with graduate courses 
in kindergarten methods. Miss Devereaux, who 
will join the department as lecturer in this branch 
of the work, is generally recognized as one of the 
leading liberal kindergartners of the country. She 
has been for twenty years, director of kindergartens 
and of a teachers' training class in Lowell. For 
two years before coming to Wellesley she taught 
Educational Psychology in the State Normal 
School at Lowell and her book on the kindergarten 
program is well known. Graduates will have an 
unusual opportunity for practical work in the kin- 
dergarten under her experienced leadership. 

The Economics Department has secured the 
services of Miss Gilmore, a graduate of the law 
school of the University of Michigan, who was ap- 
pointed by Governor-general Taft, as assistant 
attorney in the office of the Attorney-general of the 
Philippine Islands. After four years of work in 
that office, where she prepared for publication the 
"Opinions of the Office," she returned to the United 
States to study in the University of Washington 
for her B.A. degree and in Columbia University 
towards her Ph.D. In the latter place her especial 
study has been Social Economy. Miss Gilmore's 
courses promise to be intensely practical and in- 
teresting, after her years of experience and careful 

With regard to Miss Hunt, who is to teach Miss 
Bates' courses in English Literature, we can do 
no better than to print Miss Bates' own words: 
- "Dr. Mary Leland Hunt has had an unusually 
wide experience of American colleges. As a student, 
she has known Mount Holyoke, the University 
of Wisconsin, where she received her first and 
second degrees, and Columbia University, where 

she has recently taken her doctor's degree. Her 
thesis, a monograph on Dehher, is a notable con- 
tribution to the knowledge of English drama. To 
Miss Hunt's brilliant scholarship is added an en- 
thusiastic love of literature. Her own poems, pub- 
lished anonymously in the "Atlantic" and else- 
where, are sensitive and artistic to a rare degree. 
Miss Hunt has taught in the University of Wis- 
consin, the University of Kansas and in Vassar. 
She will bring to her classes in Shakespeare and 
Poetics next year a very special equipment in the 
way of learning and training, as well as the touch 
of an ardent spirit." 

The new Sophomore English course in Argumen- 
tation and Debating, bids fair to become very 
popular under the leadership of Mr. Huntington, 
who has had years of valuable experience in organiz- 
ing debating work at Harvard, Dartmouth and 
Brown University. 

The new member of the Zoology Department 
is not a stranger to Wellesley. Miss Moody, 
who takes Miss Holt's place, has been teaching one 
division of Zoology i, since February, together 
with her other work at Simmons College. She re- 
ceived her degree of B.S. and M.A. from Mount 
Holyoke, where she also taught for many years, 
and also the degree of Ph.D. from Columbia. 

Mr. Fette, of the Department of Hygiene and 
Physical Education, is a graduate of Oberlin Uni- 
versity and the Y. M. C. A. Training School in 
Springfield. He received his M.A. degree at Co- 
lumbia, where he taught for three years as the 
successor of Dr. Skarstrom. 

The Geology Department will have as a lecturer, 
Mr. Burton, B.S., C.E., dean of the Massachusetts 
Institute of Technology. A man of wide experience, 
he is one of the most eminent lecturers in his field, 
and Wellesley is deeply indebted 10 him for his 
services ne.\t year. 

Miss Gilchrist, who was for some years a member 
of our Faculty, returns to the Botany Department 
as an associate professoi in place of Mr. Wiegand, 
who goes to take entire charge of the Department 
of Botany at Cornell University. Miss Gilchrist 
comes back enriched with a year of study abroad, 
and experience as dean of women and instructor 
in botany at the Agricultural College of Michigan 
University, where she has recently taken her mas- 
ter's degree. 

Here's a warm welcome to the new members 
of our Faculty! May they find us responsive and 
ready for work! 



In another article in the News a brief sketch 
of Miss Mary Leland Hunt's career has been given. 
In addition, we wish to print the following sonnet, 
written by Miss Hunt, which appeared in the 
"Atlantic Monthly" anonymously. 

The Richness of Poverty. 
God made my spirit somewhat weak and small. 

From rich satiety of joy I shrink: 

The faintly fragrant wild-rose, faintly pink, 
Better I love than garden beauties tall, 
Deep-scented, with full-petaled coronal; 

Better the hillside brook wherefrom I drink 

Than strong sweet wines; and best the twilight 
And borderland of whatso holds me thrall. 

But if life's pageantry is not for me, 

And if I may not reach the mountains dim 
That beckon on the blue horizon rim, 
No disillusion hath mine eyes defiled, 

And I shall enter Paradise heart-free, 
With the fresh April wonder of a child. 

Mary Leland Hunt. 


The mid-week meeting of the Christian Asso- 
ciation was held in Houghton Memorial Chapel, 
on Wednesday evening, May 7. It was a meeting 
to especially commemorate the admission of the 
Wellesley Christian Association to the National 
Young Women's Christian iVssociation on the basis 
of a charter member, in this way allowing the college 
association to retain its present basis for member- 

President Pendleton led the meeting, and stated 
that we were nearing the end of the twenty-ninth 
year of the association. Professoi Whiting, a charter 
member of the association, spoke of the past history 
of religious activities in Wellesley. She said that 
the religious society work of the college might be 
divided into three epochs: the first, when there 
were a number of unrelated organizations for relig- 
ious purposes in the college; the second, when there 
was a Christian Association, but under Faculty 
leadership; and the third, since the Christian Asso- 
ciation has been under student leadership. She 
told briefly of the earliest religious activities, which 
included missionary societies, Bible classes, a 
factory girls' club and a temperance society. The 
Christian Association, a joining together of these 
activities, was organized in 1885, through the in- 
fluence of the group of Faculty from Ann Arbor, 
who had had experience with such an organization 
there. Mrs. Durant, president at that time of the 

Boston Y. W. C. A., was a great help to the asso- 
ciation at this first critical period, as always later. 
Very much the same activities were carried on then 
as now: work among the maids, mission study and 
Bible classes, and what corresponded to settlement 
work among the factory girls. A member of the 
Faculty was always president of the association, 
though students held other offices. It was proposed 
in 1891, during Miss Whiting's presidency, that we 
join the National Christian Association, but it 
was impossible to do so at the time. 

Miss Mary E. Clark, 1913, president of the as- 
sociation, spoke then of the progress the association 
has made, and the various events which have taken 
place, since there has been a student president of 
the organization. The progress has been largely in 
the matter of organization, and in placing the differ- 
ent departments of the work in the hands of com- 
mittees. The work in Bible study has especially 
developed so that it is now related to the academic 
Bible study. 

President Pendleton then read a letter of wel- 
come from Miss Grace Dodge, president of the 
National Y. W. C. A. The welcome was brought 
by Miss Bertha Condee, the national secretary, 
who added her words of welcome to Wellesley. She 
said the national association expected service from 
Wellesley in two great ways. First of all, Wellesley 
can give a great conception of Christian womanhood. 
The combination of religious and intellectual life 
is unique in Wellesley, and is recognized throughout 
the world. Leadership is also expected from Welles- 
ley, not only in missionary fields, where we have 
already done remarkable work, but in great national 
movements such as the coming conference of the 
World's Student Christian Federation. This 
alliance with an international organization has much 
in it that may be given to the new Wellesley mem- 
bers. Christian Association members in all lands 
are ready to welcome fellow members. President 
Pendleton concluded the meeting by expressing 
once more the college's debt to its founders, in that 
Wellesley has such a remarkable Christian heritage 
and ideals. 


On Sunday evening, May the fourth, Rev. Tis- 
sington Tatlow, secretary of the World's Student 
Movement, spcke in Houghton Memorial Chapel 
upon the Student Movement, with especial reference 
to its existence in England. 

The movement in Great Britain and Ireland 
includes about fifty thousand men and women, 
from two hundred institutions of the character oi 
universities, fine arts schools and music schools, 
li began in 181)2 as a missionary movement, and

Of course we all agree that there are lectures — 
and lectures. From some we come home with, 
"Well, I had a nice little nap this evening, didn't 
you?" And after others we say, "Wasn't that a 
good lecture! It gave you something to remember!" 
Wouldn't it be fine if all the lectures could be good 
ones! They would be something to look forward 
to always then, a sort of mental stimulus and en- 
tertainment coming our way, free of charge. We 
would have a great deal more time to go to them, 
too, because if all but the good lectures were 
omitted, think how much fewer there would be! 

As it is, lectures are given which are so dry or 
so inappropriate to our needs that an attendance 
at them is only gained by having them "required." 
We suffer Lhrough one and it colors our whole view 
of lectures for some time to be. Then a really good 
lecture comes along, such a,s Mrs. Florence Kelley's 
and we groan, "Another lecture — no, thanks!" 
And because it is on a broad topic of gen- 
eral interest, instead of on the special little 
microbe we are studying, because it is optional, 
and not required, we lose it. We think of the last 
one that was "such a bore," and stay at home with 
a feeling of great glee at the escape. 

Think how fine it would be if just eight or ten 
splendid lectures were given during the year! Peo- 
ple like President Eliot and Mr. Alfred Noyes give 

us something to take away with us that lasts. The 
actual knowledge they pass on may not be so great 
as that of some compiler of statistics. But the 
vital, wonderful thing they do give us is inspiration, 
and once we have felt it, we want it again. In- 
spiration is intangible, and is communicated in 
different ways. We gain it in the lecturer's en- 
thusiasm, his poise, and best of, all his personality, 
without which he seems merely a phonograph. 
This inspiration is what we go to get too often, and 
come away empty handed. But it is what we need 
in our lecturers, and that is why we want just 
"good lectures." 


Suppose the village of Wellesley had a pay day! 
Think of how relieved we'd be both in purse and 
mind after it was over. Most of us pay our big 
debts, but think of getting all your $i.05's 
and $ .15's paid, instead of having them come in 
again next month with that disagreeable two cents 
added for postage. 

Of course we have no idea that the tradesmen are 
going to do this. But why doesn't each one of us 
have a little pay day all her own? It would be so 
much nicer and more businesslike than letting 
things go till summer, and then having to make 
out a check for forty cents for those sodas we had 
last April.

at this time the Student Volunteer Missionary 
Movement also was founded. A student committee 
was appointed and a student secretary, whose 
business is to visit colleges. The membership now 
usually averages about four thousand student vol- 
unteers, sixty-four per cent, of whom sail for the 
foreign field. 

In 1893 Christian Associations were established 
in all English colleges and every college has now an 
association affiliated with the Student Movement 
of^Great Britain and Ireland. The control is in the 
hands of students. In 1898 a theological college 
department was founded. 

^,The religious condition in English colleges has 
changed much in recent years. Since 1900 the 
tendency toward piousness has been gradually 
counteracted by a vitalizing force that has broken 
down barriers, caused increasing interest in re- 
ligious regulations and brought about public dis- 
cussion of such questions. 

The English movement has several distinct 
characteristics. It is undenominational, and em- 
phasizes the differences in the creeds and doctrines 
of the various churches represented with an aim 
toward better understanding of the claims of in- 
dividual churches. It has as its basis of member- 
ship the simple acknowledgment of Jesus Christ 
as Savior, Lord and God. It is composed of both 
men and women, and while the two divisions are 
run separately, both men and women sit on the 
Organizing Committee. The control'is in the hands 
of the students, and the colleges have the right of 
electing members to the Organizing Committee. 

The Student Movement of the World now num- 
bers 150,000 students in 2,200 colleges throughout 
North America, Great Britain and Ireland, Holland 
and Belgium, France, Switzerland, Germany, 
Scandinavia, Australia, India, China, Japan, 
Russia, the Balkan states, Bohemia, and South 
Africa. The facts by which the movement lives 
are allegiance to the person of Jesus Christ, the 
adherence to the missionary ideal and belief in 
the efficacy of prayer. 

The significance of the movement may be traced 
to several causes. In the first place it is "multiply- 
ing hope for the world," in that it is influencing 
the leaders of the world for Christ, and is sending 
out hundreds of men and women to the foreign 
field. In the second place it is helping the spread 
of the Christian church by establishing Christian 
Associations among the students in non-Christian 
countries. __: 

Finally, it turns the tide of student interest of 
the whole world to Christianity and thus contributes 

toward international peace. The World's Student 
Movement reaches beyond sentiment to action, and, 
in the words of the Archbishop of Canterbury, is 
characterized by "spontaneity, buoyancy and quiet 


One of the most unique and charming social events 
of the college year occurred on Saturday evening, 
May 10, when the society Tau Zeta Epsilon gave 
its Studio Reception at the Barn. The Barn itself 
was transformed, and the usually bare walls covered 
with soft brown paper, on which hung various in- 
teresting pictures. Rugs and easy chairs succeeded 
in destroying every "barn-like" appearance, and 
you felt from the beginning as if you had stepped 
into some artist's large and attractive studio. 

The program was presented twice, at 7.30 and 
again at 9. At the close of the second performance 
a reception was given by the society to its guests. 
The pictures represented were not only^well chosen, 
but showed sympathy with the original artist and 
much faithful work. While each picture is to be 
praised for itself, the whole society deserves much 
credit for its successful program and gracious hos-

It is more conducive to a happy frame of mind 
to think on past blessings than to brood over piesent 

In this spirit, on the evening of April 30, the 
Faculty gave a dinner in the Agora House in honor 
of Professor Coman, who this year retires, after 
thirty-three years of active service. 

The table, which formed three sides of a paral- 
lelogram, was surrounded by sixty-eight of Miss 
Coman's colleagues. 

President Pendleton, the guest of honor on her 
right, and Mrs. Durant on her left, presided at the 
feast, which was bountiful from the material side, 
but which culminated in a "feast of reason" yet 
more enjoyable. 

Professor Chapin, who came to Wellesley with 
the first Michigan University group, spoke of "Be- 
ginnings," when she roomed with Alice Freeman 
in one of the Faculty bay-window rooms, and later 
took in "Kate Coman" when she came to Welles- 
ley as instructor in English. 

* Later, when Miss Freeman left the History De- 
partment for the duties of the presidency, she told 
, how Miss Coman was transferred to that depart- 
ment. The speech was characterized by the grace 
of diction usual with Miss Chapin and transferred 
the company into the atmosphere of early days. 

Miss Tufts was asked to speak from the point 
of view of one of Miss Coman's early students, a 
Sophomore rooming in the corridor over which she 
presided as "Corridor Teacher" in 1882. The 
speaker stated that there was a warning squeak 
in the door-knob of number eighty-eight when 
noise had become unbearable, and though it was 
not in the list of German verbs Miss Kendall, then 
in the German Department, taught them, they used 
to give warning, "Coman, Kate, she's coming." 

Miss Pendleton added to the memories heis, 
not of the subject matter of the history class she 
was in, but of a certain becoming blue dress of the 
instructor. Also she told of the first "Parliament" 
given by \he Constitutional History Class in the

old gymnasium, with Miss Coman as "Speaker" 
in the chair, and the Seniors of the class of '86 as 
Gladstone, Sir Michael Hicks Beach, Parnell and 
others, discussing the yet unsettled Irish question. 

Miss Kendall and Miss Balch, as collegues and 
successors in the two departments of History and 
Economics, which Miss Coman founded, most 
feelingly and gracefully voiced the appreciation 
which all share of her work at Wellesley and her 
writings on history and economics. 

Miss Balch, with reference to Sigurd, who was per- 
mitted to remain in the hall during this feast for his 
mistress, recited what she was pleased to call a dog- 
gerel," A Masque of States" in honor of Miss Coman. 

Miss Calkins spoke with wit and feeling on 
"Faculty Fellowship," and Miss Warren of the 
Board of Trustees, as an intimate friend, gave 
a graceful appreciation.

But the best was Miss Coman's noble speech. 
Beginning by saying she should like to "sass back" 
for the grinds, and that she did not deserve the 
praise, she spoke of the privilege the leaders at 
Wellesley have in helping to train for their larger 
share in world movements the women of this "Wom- 
an's Age." 

The Faculty found the fellowship of this occasion 
so rewarding that they almost lost sight of the 
fact that it was something of the nature of a fare- 
well. S. F. W. 


I. Mrs. Wiggs on Powers and Prerogatives. 
I know jest how it is! You've got some sense, 
and you think you kin run things all right, and you 
can't stand to have yer ma a-hanging' to yer apron- 
strings every minute. I allers did say that a ma 
who hung to her children's apron-strings too much 
would wake up some fine morning with nothin' but 
the aprons left. Now look at them children of mine. 
There ain't a sensibler lot anywhere, if I do say so. 
When we gits invited to a sociable or a party — we 
does sometimes — I says to them: "Now you kin 
each have one piece of everything. An' ef the cake 
is plain, or the pieces small, or the lady has cooked 
somethin' special, or ye're hungry still — ye kin hav 
some more, but ye must raise yer eyebrows at me 
afore ye take it!' ' Now some folks would laugh an'

say, "Let 'em use their own jedgment. Children 
know from inside of 'em what's good fer'em and what 
ain't." But land! Don't I know children? They 
never thinks any further inside of 'em than their 
tongues. And some folks say, "Let 'em learn from 
experience." But who pays fer the experience, I'd 
like ter know? Who foots the doctor's bill and Stan's 
the blame of hevin' pasty, peevish, bad-mannered 
children?" No, sir! Ef I'm agoin' to foot the bills 
and stan' the blame, I got a right to some say — don' 
you think so? 

II. Intercollegiate Reading. 

It was pointed out in a recent editorial, that our 
college "enthusiasm" often blinds us to our own 
shortcomings. Doesn't it blind us, sometimes, to 
the good points of other colleges? Someone was 
heard to remark, in a condescending tone, when 
President Burton was here: "Well, Smith has one 
good thing anyway — its president!" It would be 
natural to infer that Smith, from its rank among 
colleges, had quite a few "good things." Not all 
of us have friends to enlighten us, not all of us can 
rub up against other colleges at Silver Bay, but 
there is a way open to all of us to get at least a 
whiff of the atmosphere of other colleges and that 
is through their magazines. College Hall Library 
has a wide range of them, and they are well worth 
reading. - If we read them appreciatively, as well 
as critically, we become acquainted with other 
points of view and ways of doing things — and even 
with the girls whose names appear, month after 
month. If we don't have intercollegiate debating 
and athletics, we can at least have intercollegiate 
reading and interested rivalry in editing our maga- 
zines. Then no outsider can accuse us of being 
"college-sick" and narrow-minded. *9I5- 



Wellesley is supposed to furnish food for thought, 
but it seems that on the noon of May 8, the Sopho- 
mores had thought for food. 



Diana: (severely): See here. Sigurd, I've noticed 
several things about you lately that I don't like, 
and as one of your best friends I thought I ought to 
tell you. 

Faun (mildly): Well, say, Diana, I didn't ask you 
for your opinion. Don't you think you are a little — . 

Diana (firmly): No, I don't. I've roomed on the 
same pedestal with you ever since we came to 
college, and if that doesn't entitle me to set you 
right when you need advice, I don't know what does. 

Faun: All right. 

Diana: Well, Sigurd, in the first place, it is about 
your feet. I've noticed that you've been having 
trouble lately. It's those foolish painted hoofs you 
wear. Why don't you buy orthopedics? You 

can get them every fall from the Gymnasium De- 

Faun: Now, Di, see here. If you expect me to 
wear rubber-soled boats like those sandals of yours, 
you're mistaken. When it is a question between 
good looks and comfort, give me good looks. 

Diana: You're just plain superficial, that's the 
trouble with you. Your plaster's only skin deep, 
anyhow. But there's another thing. You've been 
taking the 1.03 elevator to the Fifth Floor every 

Saturday night. Now, when you have the privilege 
of being able to play in this lovely big hall, with its 
stretches of soft brown linoleum and its great 
branching pillars, and this pretty fountain, I don't 
see why you have to get away every time you have 
a minute. Spring is the loveliest season of the year 
in this corridor, too. 

Faun: I know all that, Diana, but mercy! When 
I've been prancing hard all week, I need some re- 
laxation. What's the use of living so near the 
Fifth Floor, anyhow, if you don't ever go up? 
It has an atmosphere about it that you don't 
find anywhere else in College Hall. It's the funniest 
old place to find your way around in, too. I'm 
always getting lost. I sometimes wish it was laid 
out regularly like the Second Floor. 

Diana: Yes, I know all that talk about its ad- 
vantages, but it's too demoralizing. You are never 
in a mood to begin prancing again when you get 
back. You let yourself get frivolous tastes. Now 
if you were only a thorough-going, all round statue 
like me! Why, I'm even known for my athletic 

Faun: What! Trot around in one of those skirts? 

Diana: Well, I agree with you there, Sigurd- 
I've never been sorry that I went out for hunting, — 
but these skiits are a nuisance. They're a mile wide, 
and they scare the birds when I'm hunting on the 
Fourth Floor. And as for trying to get around 
among the Palms, it simply can't be done.

The methods of obtaining teaching positions, 
both by written and personal application, were 
discussed by Professor Norton of the Department 
of Education, on the afternoon of May 6, in College 
Hall Chapel. 

Professor Norton emphasized the possibilities 
of£the written application — the first step toward 
securing a position. He read samples of appli- 
cation letters received by a superintendent of 
schools, who had added to each the impression he 
had received of the applicant from the letter. The 
successful applications were the ones which were 
brief, and to the poin< , and had sta ed the essential 
things a superintendent or principal wants to know, 
such as her preparation for teaching, her experience, 
and her preference of subjects. If the applicant 
has an avocation, such as music or gymnastics, L 
is well to add this, for a principal can often make 
use of it in the school. 

The application by means of personal interviews 
was highly recommended by Professor Norton. 
This kind, as well as the written one, should be 
made in a business-like manner. The applicant 
should remember that absolute servility is not 
required of her, and should be ready to give specific 

information of her preparation and experience. 
After the position is secured, the teacher needs 
to show enthusiasm and interest if she is to be suc- 
cessful in her work. She should strive for this es- 
pecially in the first year, since upon this largely 
depends the success of her career. In closing, Pro- 
fessor NorLon urged greater patience upon the 
student who is intending to ieach, because of the 
often repealed criticism that young college people 
are too easily discouraged and too impatient for 
quick results in their teaching. 


A talk on "Conducting a Sunday-school Lesson 
for Juniors" was given by Mrs. Myra S. Higgins 
to the students of Bible 13, Thursday evening, 
May 8, in the geology lecture room. 

Mrs. Higgins first emphasized the need of a 
purpose underneath our teaching. The most 
effective purpose is to make Christ real to the chil- 
dren, not only through the New Testament, but 
by reference to Him in study of the Old Testament. 
They can be made to see that all that means the 
most to them in life comes from Christianity. Once 
this purpose is established, the proximate purpose 
will be, first, to make an impression on the children, 
and second, to give them power over the Bible. 
Some lessons can be made more impressive if the 
children come unprepared; others they can well 
work out for themselves at home. Once the de- 
cision of purpose is made, the steps that follow will 
be apperception and adaptation by the teacher; 
activity, which is the only means of growth; interest 
and correlation of facts. Junior work should in- 
clude memory work, talks on ethical subjects,

missionary interest, work for a hospital or home 
mission, and teaching of the Bible, both for solid 
information and serious study. 

Mrs. Higgins then outlined a lesson on Joseph. 
The only equipment necessary is a blank book and 
pencil for each child, a Bible, a blackboard and 
chalk. A child's eye is more attentive than his 
ear. Set the children to find a name for Joseph — 
some characteristic to remember him by, such as 
"Joseph the Dreamer." Emphasize the geographi- 
cal location of places coming up in the story, and 
explain unusual woids. Read the story again, 
with points assigned beforehand for the children to 
notice. Then give them topics and let them write 
a little composition on the lesson. Follow up the 
lesson, perhaps by asking the children for descrip- 
tions of pictures they would like to paint. Ask 
questions. Recognize achievement by encouraging 
timid ones and challenging the over-confident. 
Correlation can be brought about by giving the 
children a question to ask their parents, such as: 
"Did Jesus' followers take news of Him to Africa?"

On Thursday morning, May 8, the Juniors hung 
a banner in Centre, challenging the Sophomores 
to be present at their Forensic burning between 

4.15 and 9.30 P.M., that day. The Sophomores 
promptly accepted by hanging their banner opposite 
the Juniors'. In the lively chase that followed, 
both sides were "good sports." The Juniors were 
victorious and the following night gave their dirge 
and ghost walk around the campus. 

Though the time for Forensic burning was thus 
shortened, the enthusiasm of a much longer period 
was crowded into the five short hours. Both classes 
hearaly say: "Long live Forensic burning."

Aiiss Pendleton was at home on Friday, May 9, 
from three to half-past five o'clock in the Farns- 
worth Museum of Art, to meet Miss Alice Vinton 
Waite, Dean-elect of the college. 

It is hoped that the college will be able to send a 
delegate to a notable International Congress on 
School Hygiene, which is to be held at Buffalo, 
August 25-30. President Woodrow Wilson has 
accepted the honorary office of patron of the con- 
gress. The president of the congress is Dr. C. W. 
Eliot, ex- President of Harvard University. Dr. 
Henry P. Walcott of the Massachusetts State 
Board of Health is one of the vice-presidents. 
Students who happen to be in Buffalo or the neigh- 
borhood at the time of the congress will doubtless 
gain much from attendance upon the congress. 

Miss Homans will soon start on a trip to the Uni- 
versities of the Middle West. 

Professor Hart and Professor Brown spoke before 
the Boston Wellesley Club at their April meeting, 
held at Denison House, the Boston College Settle- 
ment, on "What a Wellesley Alumna wants to

Miss Fung Hin Lin, a student at Wellesley Col"

The subject was "China, a Twentieth Century 

Professor Katherine Coman of Wellesley College 
with other friends of the International Institute 
for Girls in Madrid, arranged "A Spanish Morning" 
recently in Stcinert Hall and a delightful programme 
was enjoyed by a large assembly. It opened with 
songs and games by a group of eight little girls 

from the Cambridge Neighborhood House who were 
dressed in red and yellow, the Castilian colors. 
Under the direction of Miss Katherine Stanley 
Hall, '09, they sang "Little White Pigeons," "Down 
the Counter, Up the Counter," a shopping game, 
and "My Dolly," a blending of play, gymnastics, 
music, mathematics and religion. The "leader" 
carried a cross and about this all bowed at the end. 

This picturesque feature of the morning was the 
result of a study of folk-lore by Professor Katherine 
Lee Bates of Wellesley who, while sojourning in 
Spain, took down verbatim, from the children in 
the streets, the words and music. She acted as 
accompanist for the class. 

Senorita Dona Matilde Marin, a graduate of the 
institute, who is now taking a course in the Homoeo- 
pathic Hospital Training School for Nurses, then 
spoke of the women of her country. The women, 
for the most part, have very little to do with the 
rearing of their children. The well-to-do have 
nurses and governesses and at a certain time send 
the girls off to convents. The poor women go 
to factories and leave their babies entirely alone 
or with ignorant women who pay little or no at- 
tention to them. 

But a gradual change is noted; not from within 
Spain itself but through the influence of other 
nations. Especially are the Spanish women indebted 
to America for showing them better ways of living, 
and stirring them to worthy ambition. In closing 
her simple little talks she said she knew the friends 
in Boston would continue to aid this particular 
school through moral influences and material help. 

Following this, Miss Coman described a series 
of stereopticon views which showed the donkeys 
without which Spain could not exist; the primitive 
ways of agriculture, the wholesome, although hard 
labor of women washing in the rivers or toiling in 
the fields; the dreary experiences of the secluded 
women of the better class ami, best o\ all, the won- 
derful buildings of the school, which plays such an 
important part in the educational life of Madrid 
and tlie entire nation. 




Miss Sara Eastman, who was the guest of honor, 
received a very warm welcome on Wednesday, April 
2, when she attended the third annual luncheon 
of the New Haven Wellesley Club, held at the Lawn 

The dining-room of the club where the guests 
were seated at small tables was very attractively 
decorated with quantities of running pine and south- 
ern smilax, while the centerpieces at each of the 
tables were bunches of white narcissus. 

The menu cards were in the Wellesley blue, show- 
ing the Wellesley seal and tied with blue ribbon. 
The favors, which were especially attractive, con- 
sisted of tonics and herbs, balsams and the like 
gathered from Wellesley and forwarded to the club 
by a member who recently visited the college. 
These were arranged in tiny gray boxes tied with 
the Wellesley blue ribbon and bearing the Wellesley 
seal. Directions for taking accompanied each 
prescription. Following the luncheon Miss Kil- 
born, the President, introduced Miss Eastman, 
who was a member of the Wellesley Faculty at 
the time of the founding of the college, and who 
later, for many years, was the head of Dana Hall, 
in Wellesley. 

Miss Eastman had with her a number of very 
interesting photographs of those associated with 
Wellesley in the early days, which were passed to 
the guests while she spoke most entertainingly of 
the days when the founders of Wellesley first laid 
out the college and of the first three hundred girls 
who entered the college. 

Miss Eastman knew personally very intimately 
not only Mr. Durant, the founder, who was the law 
partner of the Hon. Rufus Choate, but his wife and 
the first president of the college. She also spoke 
very interestingly of the famous women who were 
members of the first classes graduating from the 
college, and read several poems written by women 
who have since become famous in literary circles. 

Miss Frances Small was then introduced to speak 
of the transition days of Wellesley from 1900 to 
1908, when many innovations were introduced at 
the college, student government among other 
things. As she was a student there at the time she 
spoke with the intimate knowledge of one who saw 
things from the inside and her address was espe- 
cially instructive and entertaining. 

A glimpse of the present Wellesley was furnished 
by Miss Marian Reynolds, who told of the victo- 
rious baitle that the girls had waged fof several 
years there to have a real dance to which they could 
bid their men friends. The announcement that a 
dance to which men were bidden was given at the 
college the past winter, was the subject of many 

recent newspaper paragraphs and had reached many 
of the Alumnae. 

At the conclusion of che speeches a short business 
meeting was held, during which Mrs. John C. Tracy, 
as chairman of the Nominating Committee, reported 
the selection of the following officers of : he club 
for the coming year: Pre.idenl, Miss Laura Gris- 
wold; Vice-president, Mrs. H. L. Andrews; Secre- 
tary and Treasurer, Miss Mary Pierce; Recording 
Secretary, Miss Lancraft. 

One of the pleasing features of the luncheon was 
the* music furnished by a number of the under- 
graduates led by Miss Hetty Wheeler, a member of 
Lhs Faculty a^ Wellesley. The songs included 
the new and old Wellesley songs and concluded with 
ihe Wellesley cheer. 

The committee who so successfully arranged the 
luncheon included: Miss Griswold, Mrs. Samuel 
C. Morehouse and Miss Florence Risley. 

Those attending included: Miss Clara Smith, 
Mrs. Charles W. Whittlesey, Miss Laura Griswold, 
Miss Myra Kilborn, Mrs. Samuel C. Morehouse, 
Miss Florence Risley, Miss Sarah Eastman, Miss 
Frances Small, Miss Marian Reynolds, Mrs. John
